Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 science fiction novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott.

As a satire, Flatland offered pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture.

Keep in mind that this was written in 1881. A wonderful tale about opening your mind to dimensional possibilities. Also, a great satire about social hierarchy.
